Modern American in Brooklyn: Williamsburg, Greenpoint & Bushwick

A warm and inviting spot in South Williamsburg, the very charming Rabbithole is a fine spot to disappear into, particularly if you're craving breakfast (served till 5pm). There's casual cafe-seating up front for good coffee and even better housemade pastries. Head to the back or the relaxing rear garden for creamy eggs Benedict or fresh fruit and granola.

In the evening, the quaint, plank-floored, tin-ceilinged eatery transforms into a gastropub, with lamb burgers, pan-seared salmon, microbrews and old-fashioned cocktails. Save some room for one of the house-made desserts.
